The Kitchen Safe locks down your cravings

by

Have you ever tried limiting your sweets intake? It can be hard to do on a good day, but when someone bakes a fresh batch of cookies, you’re going to find yourself back in the kitchen every few minutes. Wouldn’t it be great if there were a way that you could force yourself to wait a specific amount of time before eating the next one? Sure, you should be able to control your urges, but sometimes you need that extra help. Well that’s where the Kitchen Safe comes in.

This interesting gadget looks like an ordinary container, but the lid is what really makes this thing stand out. There is a small screen with a timer on the top. You can set the timer to count down from anywhere from one minute to ten days. Once set and secured, the lid won’t come off until the timer reaches zero. There is no override, and even removing the batteries won’t help you get to your sweets. If your batteries do die, the timer will start from where it left off when new ones are installed.

Food isn’t the only thing you can store in these containers. If you want to ground your child from their Xbox for a week, just pop their controller in, and start the countdown. Somehow it makes the punishment seem even worse when they can actually see the controller sitting out every time they walk past.

The container is made from BPA-free plastic, which is perfect for storing all kinds of food. Should you desire, you can choose a solid white container, which is not transparent. This is good for foods that need to be kept out of the light. It measures 6” x 6” x 6.5”, which is a nice size for storing a variety of goods. The Kitchen Safe is currently a Kickstarter project, though at the time of writing, it has received more than 90% of its funding, and still has 26 days to go. If you order during the Kickstarter funding period, you can get a safe for just $25. After that, the price will jump up to $35.

Ahh! This is fantastic! I’ve never seen anything like that before! That would really help to put a halt to those midnight snack cravings!
